Just as long as such a doohicky doesn't interfer with what the programmer wants
to do - even if it's the *wrong* way. A plug in would be best, so that those
who don't want it "meddling" with their typing don't have to tolerate it.

Coming to KDevelop and Qt from the VC++ world, I have no desire to go back! I
don't want Microsoft telling me that I can't use a label as a view, that I have
to use their indentation style, that I am required to use a their dialog
editor, etc. The future of Linux will be a fusion of Mac/Windows and Unix: ease
of use that won't get in the way of the full power of the computer.
